Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: First FOTM Jam?

Thank you both for the education. I had no idea that the credits for FOTM were MH (music) / RH (lyrics). (Well, the second part isn't surprising. but the guitar riff is the distinguishing feature so I am surprised that Jerry didn't help write it.) Regardless, the version on the MH album is obviously one in the same as what became FOTM. Thanks for pointing out the riff during the PITB riff from earlier in the month. I have listened to that show many times and, at least based on the power of suggestion, I do hear a similar motif. So, thank you, Mickey. And it's surprising that it took almost 11 months for HID to morph into the backbone of the first Scarlet > Fire and one of our favorite 2nd set staples for almost 20 years thereafter.
